A trio of players from Mission Viejo (Calif.) was expected to take official visits to Colorado this coming weekend. That trio has been reduced to a duo when standout defensive lineman Dominic Glover had to postpone the visit at the last minute because of issues with his SAT.
Glover, 6-4, 235 pounds is one of the most athletic defensive linemen in the West region. He combines size, speed and athleticism and has as much upside as any defensive end in the state this year.
The Diablos are currently 6-2 and Glover has had a very good season totaling 53 tackles and nine sacks. It's important to know that the starters for Mission rarely see action in the second half of most games due to a blowouts so Glover's numbers could be all the more impressive.
Along with his teammates Matt Bahr and Brian Lockridge, Glover was expected to visit Colorado this weekend in what would have been his first official visit of the year.
"Coach (Bob) Johnson normally doesn't like us to take visits during the season," Glover said. "He was going to make an exception for us this weekend though because he's friends with Coach Hawkins at CU and it just worked out well for us schedule wise.
"Unfortunately for me though, I had to cancel my trip because I can't find my SAT. I took it after my sophomore year and I know it has to be on archive somewhere but for the last few weeks, ever since we decided to take this trip, I couldn't find it in order to send it over to CU.
"As you know, the rules are you can't take an official visit without proof of an SAT score so just Brian and Matt are going now and I'm going to have to sit this one out. I'm definitely going to visit Colorado later in the year, they're one of my top five schools for sure.
"I also plan to visit Oregon and Arizona State for sure and most likely Oregon State too. All of my trips will have to be at the end of the season though because right now, I'm just really focusing on our last two games and then making a long playoff run. This is my last year and I want to go out with a CIF championship."
